Biggest Disappointment in Human Rights Arena? U.S.

Amnesty International urged Washington to shut down the U.S. prison camp in Guantanamo Bay

In its annual report, Amnesty accused governments around the world of abandoning human rights protections, but it stressed the biggest disappointments in the human rights arena was with the United States.

American treatment of prisoners assailed Conduct weakens rights around world, group says.

The group's annual report, "The State of the World's Human Rights,'' provides a harshly worded critique of U.S. conduct toward its prisoners alongside accounts of oppression in China and genocide in Sudan, saying the U. S. behavior "grants a license to others to commit abuse with impunity and audacity.''

And what are they doing at GTMO right now? Building death chambers. Oh, Jesus must be very proud of us. Very proud.
